Author of Middle Grade novels about friendship, family, and figuring out where you fit in.

Thank you so much for attending the virtual release day party for ONE HUNDRED THIRTY STARS! (Even if you didn't know this was going on today, you're still invited! Come on in and cut yourself a giant slice of cake!)

Happy birthday to this brand new contemporary middle grade book! Here's where you can find it:

Paperback: Amazon
E-Book: Kindle

(Nook version is still being processed and will be available soon.)

And you can add it on Goodreads here.

After we've all sang to it and made it feel awkward, it's time for presents! Don't worry, you weren't rude by not bringing anything. At this party, YOU are the one who receives the gifts (or who has the chance to, anyway.)

Enter below to win a free e-book (Kindle or Nook -- also works with iPad and android devices as long as you have either Kindle or Nook apps installed), plus a critique of the first 20 pages (double spaced) of your MS! You can still enter for the free e-book if you don't want a critique; just please specify in the comments.

If you're looking for another set of eyes to go over your MS, don't let this opportunity pass you by. I've critiqued 29 manuscripts for other writers in the past few years, and I love providing constructive and encouraging feedback. While I mostly have experience with MG, YA, and NA stories, I'm also open to adult manuscripts, provided that there's no nightmare-inducing graphic violence. Also, 20 pages is approximate -- I'll read until whatever the closest chapter break is.

Excited? Well, I am! Go ahead and enter the giveaway below:

Before the party's over, I just want to say a massive THANK YOU to everyone involved in the creation and publishing of ONE HUNDRED THIRTY STARS. Thank you to my family, friends, critique partners, writer buddies, cover artist, and everyone who is spreading the word through social media! (A more personal thank you can be found in the book's acknowledgements.) You guys are the best!

Thanks for stopping by and celebrating ONE HUNDRED THIRTY STARS' birthday!

P.S. I won't be at my computer for most of today, as I've got a ton of stuff going on (unrelated to my book's release), so I might be late responding to your comments and visiting your blogs. But I'll definitely be there as soon as I can!
